  22. what is associated with dry drowning
  23. dry drowning causes what
    larygospasms and the spasms stop water from entering lungs
  24. pulmonary edema is marked by what
    pink, frothy sputum, pt can be given diuretic to help restore oxygenation
  25. salt water and drowning...
    salt water is hypertonic, and causes fluids to rush into aveoli thus causing hypovolemia and possible shock
  26. fresh water and drowning
    • fresh water is hypotonic causes cells to lyse causing electrolytes to be diluted, causes dysrythmia and death
    • and impairs surfactant production
  27. both fresh water and salt water drowning can lead to
    pulmonary edema
  28. early and late phases of asthma
    • early phase is constriction
    • late phase is inflammation (could happen 4-12 hours later) (basophils are eosinophilis are activated)
  29. exercise induced asthma facts
    • cold dry air causes 40-90% of bronchial asthma
    • use inhaler before exercise
  30. Airway disorder facts
    -the airway narrow in response to a stimulus and cause limited air flow in and out-it increases the work of breathing and traps the residual volume of the lungs distal to then arrowed airway-inspired air mixes with a large amount of residual air (this reduces the amount of O2 avail in aveoli). Air that we breathe in is mixed with air we can’t get rid of (dilutes it)-decreased alveolar ventilation reduces oxygen available for exchange
  31. what controls smooth muscle
    autonomic nervous system
  32. parasympathetic stimulates
  33. sympathetic stimulates
  34. what foods can be trigger

    • Cromolyn sodium

  49. oral corticosteroids can cause what
    dry mouth
  50. leukotriene receptor antagonst (LRTAs) are

    • montelukast (singular)
    • zafirlukast (accolate)
    • zileuton (zyflo)

    • and for treatment of allergic rhinitis
  52. differences between COPD and asthma
    • in COPD
    • chronic
    • cough lasting longer than 3 months
    • lungs don't return to normal after excubation
    • (Chronic Bronchitis)
    • thick mucous
    • barrel chest
    • can lead to right sided heart failure
    • more likely to have cyanosis with
    • (emphysema)
    • destruction of aveoli walls
    • tri-pod position
    • an enzyme deficiency can cause (serum alpha 1 antitypsin level)
  53. why do you not want to increase O2 in pts with COPD
    because it will cause hypercapnea (elevated co2) pts will intake too much O2 and cant blow it off will become alkalonic
  54. COPD treatment
    • encourage purse lip breathing
    • encourage pneumonia and flu vaccine
    • give solumedrol mixed with iprotropiaum
  55. diet for COPD
    • cut down down on dairy and salt
    • eat high fat, protein and low carb
    • (think bacon, eggs and hold the toast)
    • peppermint/licorice are natural expectorants
  56. clot (PE) facts
    • could be tumor, air, fat, bone marrow, amniotic fluid
    • clots form in deep vein and mostly in thigh or right side of heart
  57. what is IVC filter
    fliter is inserted in inferior vena cava to prevent clots from traveling to heart
  58. what is streptokinase
    clot buster
  59. Dx test for PE
    • pulmonary angiagram
    • CT of chest
    • plasma D dimer
    • (do coag test after D dimer to determine clot type)
